The Story

Purchased back in November of 2022 Total nut and bolt restoration This car is a car you drive, not that drives you Cruise control- nope Power steering- nope Power windows- nope AC- I wish, but nope This car was built to be driven, to get back to the basics and love the road again. 1978 Austin Mini with a D16Y7 engine, 5 speed Syncrotech transmission w/ 3.72 final drive MCM custom headers and intake 2.5in exhaust with Vibrant resonator and muffler Hondata S300 V3 with tablet dash Tuned by Tuningbynick out of Toronto 10x6 gold deep dish from minilite 😎 Stancyboi 😎 Springs instead of the traditional cones Protec shocks Custom interior with a set of 2016 Clubman seats JBL speakers w/ Pioneer 4 channel amp Painted in a beautiful bomber style blue or some may say, primer lol Roof rack cause I like to party and I want my car to party (in all seriousness- that's all the storage room I have in this thing) Still needs a few driveway hours in on it for it to be completely ready to rip.
